I'm completely confused on when to change the timing belt on a 2001' Audi 
S4 (2.7 liter).  My dealer says to change it now (the car is with him for 
tie rod replacement and 60K check, and he wants $2100 for the timing belt 

I was shocked at the price.  I called around, and another dealer says they 
do it for $1400, but insists it shouldn't be done until around 90K for a 
2001 S4.  I insisted he double check, and he confirmed the same with his 
service manager.  He confirmed what he initially said.

I also looked around on the audiworld forums, and there seems to be a 
mishmash off 60K and 90K timing belt replacements.  Anyone know what the 
definitive answer is?
